HTC Nexus Marlin Sailfish fake leaks

Codenamed Sailfish and Marlin, they’ve managed to leak a few times, giving designers ideas such as the one above.

The leftmost model seems to adopt the big speaker holes and design traits of a modern HTC Desire model, mixed with a back that seems pretty unique to me, even though it’s lacking the third of glass we’ve seen at the top of the back in previous leaks. If I had to choose, I’d take the left one over the right, but once again these are merely fakes…
